LIAM Hearn is set to be out for several months after a scan revealed that he has ruptured his Achilles tendon on his left leg.
The Town striker picked up the injury towards the end of Friday's training session and will now have a surgical repair tomorrow. Surgery will be followed by four to six weeks in a plaster cast - then some time in a cast boot.
Ironically the Achilles is on the opposite leg to the Achilles injury which had caused him problems during pre-season.
We would like to wish Liam a speedy recovery. You can Tweet Liam through our official twitter
